Stoke City Vs Manchester United : Match Preview And Predictions

Manchester United head to Stoke City this weekend after their winning Run got Smashed by Liverpool last weekend in a 1-1 draw while their host had a good day winning 3-1 against Sunderland.

Marko Arnautovic and Peter Crouch made the day great for Stoke, Marko Arnautovic scoring twice while Crouch scored his 99th Premier League goal but Manchester United got disappointed by their draw and will hope to get back to winning ways this weekend therefore Stoke should be ready for a bigger and better team than Sunderland.

Team News

Stoke City will be out with their best in order to take at least a point from this clash but those definitely out due to the African Cup Of Nations are Mame Biram Diouf and Wilfried Bony while Jack Butland and Jonathan Walters are out on injuries. Bojan Krkic has revealed his desire to leave the club hence featuring him will be on probability.

Manchester United on the other hand have less injury concerns, hence Jose Mohrinho will be out with almost the same team as against Liverpool with Mata replacing either Henrikh Mkhitaryan or Martial.

Bailey is at the African Cup Of Nations while Luke Shaw is Unfit, and James Wilson on Knee injury.

Predictions

Manchester United had been a bit wasteful against Liverpool and will be working hard to prevent that occurring again and though Stoke had a good day against Sunderland, Manchester United is a bigger better team than Sunderland therefore in my prediction

Stoke City 1-3 Manchester United

The Managers

Jose Mohrinho The United Boss was disappointed at his team for not making the three points available in their last fixture, expressing it he said

"We were the team that attacked and Liverpool were the team that defended - let's see if the critics are fair. I enjoyed it but I will obviously be disappointed we didn't get the three points."

Mark Hughes, Stoke Boss was happy with the way his team played against Sunderland and really wants his team to continue in that good feet.

"The football we played during the first 30 minutes or so of the first half was as good as anything we have produced away from home for several years in my opinion.

"We have never finished seventh or eighth in the Premier League before so that is undoubtedly our aim over the final few months of the season."
